    PeteXXX Cake or ice cream? The choice is endless ...

    Today, I drove a couple of miles to the World's End pub in Ecton to start my walk.

    Heading across the Northampton Round, as it's called, I was hopping from tussock to tussock to keep out of the bullock trampled footpath.


    Once through that, I decided not to use the tractor tramlines showing we're the footpath is, and walked around the perimeter of the field.

    Sywell Reservoir. A nice place for a walk, but heaving at weekends and in the summer. Today was nice and quiet.


    A few miles later, I found that the circular walk didn't quite complete the circle, due to drainage works. There was no way past it, so I returned the way I came.


    The café was open, so an ice cream was purchased.

    A pleasant 7+ miles.

    A 10 mile walk from the house. Found a local village church was open (always locked when go past normally) and had a look round. Lovely stained glass windows and a wonderful organ. Still patches of snow and ice in places.

    Took a walk around the local villages, nature reserve and found a couple of geocaches along the way. Bit of a wind for the first half of the walk which calmed down by the halfway point. The four of us have caught the sun too!

    Strava stopped recording so I’ve learnt how to manually upload a route to make up the distance after using Strava’s route planner to work out distance and elevation.

    7.5 happy miles in the sun.
  4. Today's walk was 9992 steps, my plan to stay on the settee for the rest of the day is in jeopardy ^_^

    A huge rarity for me, a free day on a business trip. I'm in Sydney, so I walked from Coogee via Bondi Beach to Watson Bay. About 15km all in


    Went for a swim in this natural pool



    I got a bit sunburnt. Sorry, couldn't resist mentioning it

    Slow But Determined Nid Yw Cymru Ar Werth!

    Quite a regular 5 mile circuit but timed it to coincide with the maiden approach of the Beluga XL into Hawarden Airport.

    Dog enjoyed himself anyway...
